How to measure for a custom frame
There are a few things you need to know before ordering a custom frame:
First, you need to know the dimensions of your poster. To do this, simply measure the width and height of your poster in inches.
Next, you need to decide on the width of your frame. We recommend that you choose a frame that is at least 2 inches wider than your poster. This will allow for some additional space around your poster, making it easier to Mat and Frame.
Lastly, you need to decide on the style of your frame. Poster frames come in two basic styles: Wood and Metal. Wood frames are available in a variety of finishes, while metal frames come in both standard and anodized finishes.

Tips for Framing Posters
Poster frames come in a variety of sizes, but the most popular size for framing posters is 18″ x 24″. This size will fit most posters and is large enough to be seen from a distance. When choosing a frame for your poster, you will also need to consider the thickness of the frame.
Hanging a poster
There are a few different ways that you can hang a poster. You can frame it, mount it, or simply tape it to the wall. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages.
Framing a poster is the most expensive option, but it will also protect your poster from damage and make it look nicer. You will need to buy a frame that is the right size for your poster, and you may need to get the poster professionally mounted.
Mounting a poster is cheaper than framing, and it will still protect your poster from damage. You will need to buy mounting supplies, such ashesive and foam board, and you will need to mount the poster yourself.
Taping a poster to the wall is the cheapest option, but it offers no protection for your poster. Tape can also be difficult to remove from walls without damaging them.
Using poster framing mats
Mats are available in standard sizes that correspond to the most popular frame sizes. They come in a variety of colors and can be used to complement the poster or provide a dramatic contrast. If you’re matting a poster, it’s important to use an acid-free mat board to prevent the poster from discoloring over time. Some mats have precut openings that are slightly smaller than the poster so that the poster can be mounted flush with the top of the mat. This makes it easier to frame the poster and gives it a professional appearance.
Displaying a poster in a frame
When you take the time to create or purchase a poster, you want to make sure it is displayed properly. A common way to display a poster is by putting it in a frame. This can protect the poster from wear and tear, as well as keep it from being damaged by moisture in the air. But how do you know what size frame to get for your poster?
The first step is to measure the poster. You will need to know the width and height of the poster in order to select a frame that is the right size. Once you have these measurements, you can start shopping for frames.
There are a few things to keep in mind when selecting a frame for your poster. The most important thing is to make sure that the frame is big enough to fit the entire poster without crowding it. You also want to make sure that the frame is not too big or it will overpower the poster.
Another thing to consider is the material of the frame. There are frames made from wood, metal, and plastic. Each material has its own benefits and drawbacks. For example, wood frames are usually more expensive than plastic frames, but they can give your poster a more classic look. Metal frames are often more durable than other types of frames, but they may not be as aesthetically pleasing.
Once you have selected a frame, you will need to put the poster in it. If you are using a traditional frame with glass, you will need to use tape or glue to secure the poster to the back of the frame. If you are using a self-standing frame, you may be able to simply insert the Poster into the back of the frame without any additional securing required.
Framing a Poster correctly can help ensure that it lasts for many years and looks great on display!
